Congrats on a professional quality photograph Randy.
This was a joy to view and a bit surprised it didn't end up in the top ten.

Wow... I have always wanted to be there when butterflies are "hatching". This is an incredible shot. Hope you put in the details what species these are because they are beautiful.

What a breathtaking photo. I called my wife over to the computer to see it. She said these look like embroidered hankerchiefs. A wonderful subject captured exquisitely! 10

I don't think I've seen a butterfly pic I've liked more -- wonderful job!

Nice bokeh! (I can say that now that I've learned a new word.)

These are beautiful animals caught at a wonderful time. I'd only suggest that some of the dark area on the right could be cloned out--it doesn't add much for me, and tends to pull the eye away from your truly fascinating subject.

very eye appealing

This is delightfully simple - the composition here is fantastic. Unlike any of the butterfly images I've seen so far (and there have been more than a few) so that alone scores you high marks from me. 8.

Very good job! 10

beautiful shot, would like to see it with much tighter crop though.

I gave out 5 10's, this is one of them.
Fantastic image, nothing I could suggest would improve this at all.

Stunning photo, the colors and clarity bring it all together.

Wowee. Talk about being in the right place at the right time. I bet you waited quite a while to get this shot.
